On Monday things really quieted down. The true weekenders were gone and only the "old folks" remained. We re-did our first hike to the Visitor Center where I got a few pictures of the fish and the record sizes for our son, Joe. He's back into fishing now, so has regained his interest in the sport. While there, we also saw the Desert Tortoise in his lair. They are quite large and interesting looking. It seems we saw one in a park down ...
